SummitRUN is a fast-paced adventure game based on Latin America facts and designed to stimulate interest in all things Latin American in students learning Spanish from middle school through college.
The object of the game is to navigate along perilous routes in the rainforest, avoiding obstacles, surviving natural disasters, to be the first to reach the summit of a towering Mayan temple. A player only advances along the board after correctly answering a question on Latin American history, geography, sports, cuisine, politics, art or even pop culture.
Each trivia card offers four questions geared to four skill-levels: easy, intermediate, advanced and expert. The easy questions are for middle school students, offering a mix of English and Spanish while the advanced questions, aimed at senior high school and college students, are completely in Spanish.
